Our Competitive Dance Programs

The Dance Refinery’s competitive dance programs could supplement your dance performing group commitment or as a different commitment from the dance performing groups. All competitive dance, hip hop, & pointe performing groups will compete at two regional and national competitions and perform in our Annual Recital.

The Dance Refinery offers a full range of competitive programs where our students take jazz, tap, and ballet and compete in these styles. They will also learn musical theater, lyrical, and contemporary dance as they get older and compete in them. We encourage our dancers to pursue various classes to ensure their growth as dancers and as artists.

Recreational Competitive Dance Programs

If our competitive dance groups don’t sound like the best fit, we recommend our recreational competitive dance performing groups! We offer jazz, hip hop, and ballet classes. These classes have fewer requirements than our competitive performing groups, are only required to meet once a week, compete at two local competitions, and perform at our Annual Recital.

This is a fantastic alternative for someone who wants to join our recreational program and see what competitive dance is all about! The Dance Refinery wants you to branch out, have fun, and improve your skillset as you best see fit!
